4 Ways to Celebrate National Stress Awareness Month
The semester is coming to an end, and many of us are beginning to feel the stress that comes with it. April is the perfect time to work on reducing our stress levels, considering its National Stress Awareness Month!
Here are four ways to celebrate National Stress Month Awareness Month here on campus:
- Massage therapy involves working on the body with pressure to promote relaxation and well-being, while also removing stress. UNH offers discounted prices to UNH employees and students.
- One of the many benefits of meditation is decreased stress, depression, and anxiety. It can also help enhance sleep. Drop in guided meditation sessions are offered to the campus community on Mondays, 12:15 p.m. – 12:45 p.m., in MUB 334.
For those of you who don’t have time to leave your desk, try these meditation videos from Health Services.
- Reiki is based on the idea that we all have an energy running through us, and when that energy is out of balance, we become ill or unhappy. Reiki is most commonly used to help stress related conditions. Reiki circles are open to the UNH community.
- Biofeedback uses technology to measure changes in your physiological state while teaching breathing, relaxation, and meditation exercises. Biofeedback benefits include sleeping better, reducing stress, and improving your overall health and well-being. The program is divided into 15 sessions, taking a maximum of thirty minutes to complete each session. Biofeedback is available to all UNH staff, faculty, and students.
